1. Never patch it manualy. I do not know who came up with this bad idea, but this only leads to more issues.
2. Please make sure to run the patch with admin permissions and make sure its not blocked by any Security or Antivirus settings.
It can take a while depending on the system until it can detect the game correctly on the 1st run.

If you still did let it run throw and it does not offer any install options, please post the log of the patch here and we will take a look.

The log sadly lies sometimes. In your case it will always fail to detect, because you have multiple GPU's in your system. That causes an internal error. So just ignore that and follow these steps:

Whats is important that after you installed the hardware patch, on the startup of the game, you get asked about "optimicing" the setting. There you MUST choose "cancel". After that the game will start and you will have max settings + it will properly apply your hardware. When you do select "ok", it will check it based on the hardcoded internal database and not the hardware database we just modified.

Since you play on a mobile device with multiple graphic cards, you need to asure your dedicated GPU (high performence settings - nvidia in your case) is used for the game. Your Intel APU Chip is incompatible to the game. Please configure your driver to apply the "high performence" gpu to this game, or use an external monitor on your notebook. Anything displayed there always uses the dedicated GPU.

Sounds like an issue with the hardware overall.
Could you please post a system-report with the SMB ( http://www.smb.keepfree.de/download.html ) with the following settings?

The Hardware Patch found the game just fine, for the rest you sadly did not post the log.
